Connect10, TxDoT work, closures, detours for week of September 15

Here’s a look at local project closures for the week ahead, complete closure lists can be accessed via hyperlinks are at the bottom of this story.

Also, as bridges around the I-10 Connect Project begin taking shape, motorists will encounter a handful of overnight closures on Interstate 10, US 62 (Paisano Drive), US 54 and SH 20 (Alameda Avenue) in the coming week.

Ramp F which connects westbound I-10 to Juárez is now closed to all traffic. This closure will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week until further notice. In the coming weeks, Ramp G which connects eastbound I-10 to Juárez will close, too.

Traffic seeking to access Juárez from westbound I-10 at the Spaghetti Bowl will use the following detour: Take Exit 22B (US 54/Alamogordo/Juárez/Fort Bliss); instead of going south to Juárez, follow northbound US 54. Take Exit 23 (Cassidy Road), then take Exit 22B (Pershing Drive). Use the newly widened turnaround at Pershing to enter southbound US 54. Continue on southbound US 54 and follow the signs to Juárez.

 

Commercial trucks should be mindful that they are prohibited from using many city streets adjacent to the detour route. The official detour has been designed to minimize traffic signals and includes newly widened portions to better accommodate truck traffic. However, motorists should consider using other international bridges to cross into Ciudad Juárez.

The City of El Paso International Bridges Department recommends motorists sign up for an E-Fast Pass which will help speed their crossing and qualify them for reduced toll rates for southbound crossings at the Stanton Street and Zaragoza Bridges.

For more information on the City of El Paso’s E-Fast Pass program, call (915) 212-7540. Click here to apply.
